Metalcloak is the First to Introduce Kevlar to the Jeep Suspension Market

Metalcloak today made public a project layered under blankets of secrecy; a project that started with the simple question “could we?” over 18 months ago; a project that could, once again, be a “game-changer” for the growing company.

As part of a video series called the “Metalcloak Minute”, the face of Metalcloak, Matson Breakey, announced that since May of 2018, Metalcloak has been “quietly introducing a new Duroflex Joint. Changing over inventory as stock permitted.”

According to the announcement, the new Duroflex Bushings feature “our iconic M embossed on the side… and… it is made with DuPont Kevlar Fiber. Yes. Kevlar.”

The Duroflex Bushing was originally introduced in 2011 to a world of skeptics who were used to the more traditional and vulnerable flex joints for use in their suspension systems. Since then the Duroflex Joints have become “synonymous with great off road performance and awesome daily driver ride quality – all while maintaining industry leading durability,” according to Matson.

The Duroflex Joint was first introduced in 2011 as a revolution in Bushing design

Metalcloak is known as a company of firsts… from the first quick disconnect production tube fender, to the first production full replacement fender, to the first long travel compact shock, to the first vibration dampening high misalignment bushing… and now the first company to introduce Kevlar into the Jeep Suspension system.

Metalcloak claims the addition of Kevlar into the Proprietary Vulcanized Rubber Compound that makes up the Duroflex Bushing is all part of continuing to lead the industry in function and durability for years to come.

“Afterall, Dupont’s tagline for Kevlar is Dare Bigger, I think that says it all,” concludes Matson.

    After 2 years of trouble free usage, my RE Delete front track bar (long arm configuration) has been exceptional. After 2 years, my RE Extreme Duty joints with PT-MEG joints have not. Will the RE Delete long arm kit eventually receive Kevlar upgrades? Joint maintenance is for the birds,IMO.

    Sorry, I need to add that my vehicle is a 2003 ½ Tomb Raider-edition Rubicon running the 4.5″ Rubicon Express long arm system.
